[Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users Google Chrome Guide1 11/18/08 12:31 PM
To all my x64 friends running into problems using Google Chrome (especially when using the Options menu or bookmarking, etc):

We've pushed out a new Chromium dev build that aims to fix this issue. You guys can test out the dev build through the following link:
http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel/

Let me know if you guys still run into issues.

Running 0.4.154.25 on Windows 2003 x64 and it still crashes when the options dialog is opened.

I think Google should just release a 64-bit build for their browsers. Even large plugin builders like Adobe and Sun Microsystems are committing to make 64-bit browser plugins. Heck, Java runs on 64-bit native. This should ease 64-bit issues when running 32-bit Chrome.

Right now, the stable Google Chrome works with x64 but not flawlessly.

It's not a question of just doing a 64-bit build. V8 (the Javascript engine) generates 32-bit code and adding a new port would be a major undertaking.

that wasn't particularly forward thinking.....
It won't be long before all OSes are ONLY x64. Probably a few years (windows 8, OS X 10.7, and Linux will probably maintain both forever!)

Just want to say that im currently running chrome 2.0.172.33 on 64bit windows 2003 enterprise, and having no problems at all.
I would also like a 64bit native version however, but it works fine in 32bit.
Re: [Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users wilzdezign 1/1/10 11:37 PM
Agree. Just have to wait for x64. There is already talks from Microsoft about Win 8&9 going x64 and x128, no more 32 bit. So to push the standard of x64, all OS's should be x64, including Google Chrome OS

Message to google: stop dragging your damn feet, lying to your customers about efficacy of temporary fixes that don't work and release a version of the chromium browser that is compatible with the windows vista and windows 7 operating systems. It is extremely aggravating when google knows its present builds don't work properly on Vista and 7 but lies to its loyal customers about alleged fixes such as regedits  which haven't fixed the problem. Google knows about the problem but is dragging its feet. Get off your lazy butts and give us a google browser that works on vista and 7 and stop lying about why the issue hasn't been resolved. If you want to lose market share, keep doing what you're doing!
Re: [Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users TronixA 2/7/10 3:21 PM
I have to agree with AlohaSlick. I tried the supposed versions that work with Windows 7 64 and the browser crashes after just a few seconds on opening. Seems to have something to do with some smartcard software possibly. Not 100% certain though...

I have Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium and have had zero problems running Chrome 32-bit on this computer. But I would still like to see a 64-bit version. Why have a 64-bit OS when almost all apps are 32-bit?
Re: [Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users dwight.stegall 4/16/10 10:03 PM
IE 8 64-bit is worthless since you can't use flash with it.

Glad they started work on this "major undertaking" -- http://groups.google.com/group/chromium-dev/browse_thread/thread/701cd2dadcc639d3.

Sad isn't it Adobe won't work with Apple to get flash on their iphone and it would seem they are unwilling to support 64 bit computing as well. Am I missing something here? Am I confused?
Re: [Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users Catrinisin 8/11/10 2:55 PM
Steve Jobs said Apple won't use Flash because Flash is too buggy. My ass Steve Jobs! DI you guys know that 70% of the video on the web is in Flash? I guess Apple likes the small numbers. I.E. even today, only 3.7% of computers in the world are Apples.

Back to topic, the problem with 64 browsers right now is that most all plug-ins are only 32 bit. Things are starting to turn around, companies such as LogMeIn now have a 64 bit Active-X for IE. It is very fast compared to the 32 bit version. Once the world finally embraces 64 bit, we will all benefit greatly. Windows 7 is really paving this road finally too. Tons of Windows 7 installs are 64 bit now, and it actually works fine, unlike Vista 64 bit.

Google, we love you but hurry your asses up! :)

I am using windows 7 64-bit and chrome runs just fine as it is. What sort of problems are you guys having?? I noticed this thread dates back 2 years, too, so I assume the problems have been fixed???

Also I don't even notice any difference in running a 32-bit and 64-bit app on the same system. Like I have tried IE x86 and 64-bit and both run the same speed and well, I don't even use IE. I use Chrome. But still, I don't see what everyone is complaining about.

Personally.... I just bought a new AMD quad gamer ..I installed a copy of XP professional 64 that I had laying around..Everything I have installed so far works great.. except Google chrome.. it refuses to load ..I have tried everything I have come across in all the tech help sections...tried the Dev install too.. nothing.. except...." Down load error. The downloaded file failed verification.Error code0x80040204.
I could give two shits for Chrome..Firefox downloaded without issue and is running just fine... However.. my girlfriend loves chrome..and I wont hear the end of it till it's installed... Come on Google... give an old Scotsman a reprieve from the ear busting!!!

@djpurity Try using the google image search it's painfully slow on windows 7 64-bit.
Re: [Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users Ulieq 1/1/11 10:21 AM
Flash "Square"   Flash 10.3 is 64bit now.  Java has a native 64bit java now. Firefox (minefield) has a 64bit fully supported platform now.  If Chrome doesn't come out with 64bit within the next month or 2, they will lost serious ground.

I have an issue with the lack of documentation of the absence of a x64 Chrome.

Just say it.  On the download page.

"Chrome may or may not work on x64 machines.  There is no x64 version of Chrome."

Sure, it's my mistake to own a x64 machine, but it doesn't seem unreasonable to warn users of potential and likely incompatibility.
Re: [Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users niagarasystems 1/31/11 6:55 AM
32-bit Chrome has worked for me on Windows XP / Vista /7 x64 just fine; however I'd rather have a native x64 version, one that used my x64 Sun Java when it was required.
Re: [Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users Jerry G. 3/11/11 7:06 PM
I tried Chrome 32 bit on Windows 7 Pro - 64 bit, and also on a number of different computers with Windows 7 Pro - 32 bit.

On the 32 bit Windows computers Chrome ran impressively. It was very stable and fast. I could not find any fault with it. I must commend that Chrome has to be the fastest and simplist browser I have used.

On the Computer with the 64 bit operating system I had problems to install it. After installation, it was running sort of unstable. I had no choice but to uninstall it.

I am going to wait for the tested  64 bit version of Chrome.

I have been using other browsers that are 64 bit complient, and the are able to run very well on the Windows 7 Pro - 64 bit.

Shame on you Google, how can you dare to not have a 64 bit version for WIN7?

I have x64 (or 64-bit) and Google Chrome works perfectly. I never run into problems with it. It works, so whats the problem? But it needs to be x64. I wish I had a Mac though.
Re: [Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users Irony 5/18/11 12:48 PM
I can't Chrome to work at all on my XP Professional x64. It starts up, but every URL times out, even its own settings (chrome://settings).
Re: [Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users RupertOx 6/22/11 8:40 AM
I'm curious, did it take this long for major developers to adopt 32bit over 16bit back in the day?
Re: [Google Chrome Guide Post] Updates for 64bit users hornet128 8/18/11 12:22 PM
